( waves crashing ) from comedy central's world news headquarters in new york, this is "the daily show" with jon stewart! (cheers and applause) ♪ >> jon: welcome to "the daily show." i'm jon stewart. we have a very good program for you this evening. my guest tonight, amanda seyfried. (cheers and applause) but first, i know there's been a lot of talk about what i'm going to do after this show. "will jon return to male
modeling? i used to make model airplanes. (laughter) or perhaps shall i fulfill my destiny as the star child? (laughter) wow. first time i saw that one. all options i've considered and discarded because today i'd like to officially announced that i'm hosting a new show for c-span called "hate watch with jon stewart." (cheers and applause) here's a sneak preview. >> coming up next on c-span jon stewart looks at congress in c-span's new show, "hatewatch." then at 11:30 p.m., on book tv author michio discusses the challenges of writing a memoir when there's a bee trapped in
your office. >> hi, everybody. welcome to "hatewatch" on c-span 2, i'm jon stewart. why don't we take a look today and see what the congress is up to. >> a bipartisan bill to provide assistance to human trafficking victims and additional resources to law enforcement has gotten stuck in the senate. >> jon: it appears the senate is stuck on a bill i'm not sure every american not involved in trafficking humans for sex would support. that sounds like something i would hate. tell me more. >> democrats are stripping out hyde amendment. >> jon: hyde amendment named
after republicans, blocking use of federal money for abortions, just because the procedure is completely legal doesn't mean it has to be treated that way. i see what's happened a little bit of republican what we at c-span two call (bleep)ry. how did the sex trafficking bill get passed past committee without any not republicans complaining. >> when the bill was approved by both democrats and republicans democrats admitted they didn't read it fully. >> jon: you didn't read it fully. what, did you just skim it to see if your name was mentioned? mom! i'm in the bill! >> we didn't know it was in the
bill. you can blame it on staff, blame it on whoever you want to blame it on. >> jon: how about i blame not reading the bill on "you." senator harry reid, the guy in charge of senate democrats whose last name is lirldly literally" reid ." how did you not read this bill? that's like going to john waters' house and finding out all of his plants are dead. john, you should have "last named" them! but as it turns out, the aforementioned (bleep)ery was running it. >> a republican judiciary committee staffer sent a democratic staffer a summary of previous changes in seven bullet points. guess what. they left out the change they
made. >> rvps announcing trusting them was a mistake. >> jon: you think? and you know who that's on? you. the the same way nobody blames the bears in "grizzly man" for eating the delicious-looking meat sack who kept sticking his hands in their poop. because bears are bears. perhaps it's time on "hatewatch" to go to the phone. >> "hatewatch" sponsored by by arby's. >> jon: just call the number on your screen (laughter) first caller. you're on the air. >> caller: jon, clearly the problem here is black people don't have an american work ethic and can't really
understand civilization, so as long as president broke o'bummer is in office oppressing white people -- >> jon: goodbye. let's return to our examination of how a bipartisan sex trafficking bill is stuck in the senate. i believe mitch mcconnell would like to make apoint. a point. >> the language that they now profess to find offensive was in there from the beginning. they all voted for the very same language in a bill in december. (jon screaming) i need a moment. >> up next we train our cameras on an empty podium long before anyone approaches it to speak. >> jon: i'm all right. unless senator mcconnell is about to in the immediate aftermath of complaining that the democrats are using an
unrelated issue to hold up important senate business -- hold up important senate business with an unrelated issue. >> senate majority leader mitch mcconnell says he'll put off a vote on nominee loretta lynch until the senate passes a human trafficking bill. >> jon: help! help! >> we rejoin live a reenactment of a civil war reenact meantime book panel. >> blah, blah blah gettysburg. north freedom, blah, blah, blah, look at my hair i'm so old i wear a bow tie! >> fascinating... >> jon: appears the failure of the sex trafficking bill to pass the senate would seal the victory for (bleep)ry in this case but we won't sure until we know for sure from a vote on the senate floor accompanied by by
classical music to make you feel smart. (music) >> jon: this is taking too long. i'll make another announcement. six and a half minutes ago, c-span 2 gave me an incredible opportunity to host this show. but now i think it's time for anyone else. please "hatewatch" doesn't se serve a host who's even slightly nauseous. i don't know when i'll be leaving "hatewatch." yes, i do. right bheep now. wow! that was a nightmare! we'll be right back! ♪ ♪ live a full life.
